4 out of 5 stars a lot of fun on P2

Wow, I had never been on this climb. The second pitch is a ton of fun. Crux was puzzling for this shorty. Once I figured it out it was easy peasy. Very fun and worth doing. Linked with Arrow.

4 out of 5 stars Just P2

Led P2, after following Eric on Thin Slabs to the GT ledge. For a bunch of silly reasons we didn't finish Thin Slabs, but I got to lead P2 of Red Pillar.

Nice to get back into leading after a break. Very sweet climb, at first glace the moves at the top of P2 seemed harder than 5, but once climbed it became obvious it was 5 all the way.
